Location: Sipaway Island, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental

How to get here?

From any point in Negros Island, just ride a bus going to San Carlos City, usual fare is Php 100 – 150 if you are farther away from San Carlos but you can also bring your school ID for a student discount. Estimated travel time is 1 to 2 hours.
From San Carlos Terminal, ride a pedicab Php20 per person or tricycle P10 per person to port going to Sipaway.
From port, ride a pump boat for only Php15 per person and after cruising the blue sea for about 10 minutes, you will then arrive at the mini port of Sipaway.

From there, you can either choose to ride a tricycle which cost Php50 per person or ride the service car of Whispering Palms Resort for only Php25 but this is usually scheduled.

If you are a solo traveler, they charge Php200 for the entrance fee but if you are in a group, they only charge Php200 to the first person and Php150 for the others. Lunch and the cottage is already included in the entrance fee so you can just tell the Front Office Clerk when to serve your food. They allow the use of tent if you want to stay overnight and on a budget or rent one of their cheap rooms. Just ask one of their friendly staffs.

(note – Sipaway has one of the best diving spots in the Philippines so better prepared extra money if you want to experience this majestic wonder)
